Anybody been to Diane DaCosta's salon??

Hi,
Has anybody been to Diane DaCosta's Serenity Salon in NYC? If you have, how would you rate the experience? Also, is it very expensive? Your feedback is gratefully appreciated!
Hi!

I haven't been, but I have an appointment in June! Masscurly has been and she gives it raves reviews. I believe she talks about her experience on either the 4a or 4b board.
4a/4b... at this point, Henna has to be my friend, cause I've tried EVERYTHING else!!

Henna, Afro Detangler, KBB hair cream, Vitamin E oil, Qhemet AOHC, AND no more letting my hair dry curly... darn knots are driving me crazy!!

In June? It comes with the territory-great stylist, long wait.
Da Costa's salon is located in Tallahassee? I could make an appointment now and when I visit my family kill two birds with one stone.
I am a 3c reformed product junkie thanks to the economy.

I lurk a lot, I change my hair color a lot. It's currently black and bsl when wet and beyond my shoulders still when dry.

Now I will stop procrastinating and get back to what I was supposed to be doing before I got on here.

Any questions?

Really? When I was in Tallahassee for a summer I went to a great stylist there. Her name was Miranda. Have you heard of her? I forget the name of the salon but it was an Aveda salon.
Now she was a person hard to book in a quick minute, but I absolutely loved the way she did my hair. But Miranda only. I went to another stylist at the same salon and she did such a poor job i should have made them fix it.

The second time I went for a color touch and she ONLY touched up my outer edges, leaving roots in the middle of my head untouched! Long story short, I think she's a great straight hair stylist and colorist, but she doesn't know how to handle 4a/4b textures... but I find that many stylist don't. I've even been to Kiersten and Company and tried their 'Mineral Softener'. It did nothing for my hair. My hair tends to shrink A LOT, so I'm looking to elongate the curl. Its frustrating because my hair NEVER shows its true length. I constantly have to pull it out which I believe is causing breakage. I've thought about getting a texturizer, but I've read about too many bad experiences. Having said all of that, I've gotta give Diane a try!

3c curls are completely different from mine, so I can see her styling your hair with ease. Oh well, thanks for the recommendation though

I want to give Diane a try too when I visit NY this summer
I herad she was great and her prices are reasonable as well
Thick coarse 4b hair. Holy Grail: Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. Trying to grow it to bra strap length. Currently collar bone length.
I went to her website but I didnt really see any pics of like 4a, everyday haircuts. I think Im still searching for THE person to cut my hair. I had a great experience with Alice at Curlisto, but I just want the HG stylist LOL
